G.D. Vajra, 2016 Barolo Albe DOCG
Produced from the vineyards of Fossati, Coste de Vergne and La Volta, this is “Barolo di Barolo”, from fine terroirs located at medium altitude. With this wine Vajra seeks to express the true aromatic quality of the Nebbiolo grape along with its elegant body, harmonious structure and ripe tannins. Long ageing in Slavonian casks assures the preservation of primary fruit aromas and guarantees excellent ageing potential.
Complex orange notes add to notes of red fruit, flowers, pine and wild herbs. It shows good intensity and structure with ripe tannins. This is one of those rare wines that one can honestly say to drink now or hold for 5-10 years. It’s that versatile and delicious.
